RAW MAY BE IN STORE FOR ANOTHER PIECE OF TOUGH COMPETITION THIS FALL

During a speaking engagement at the Deutsche Bank Media, Internet & Telecom Conference in Palm Beach, Florida earlier this week, CBS Corp. president and CEO Leslie Moonves discussed some of the number one network's future plans and noted that "The Big Bang Theory", which is the top network comedy, could be moving to Mondays this fall.

"Big Bang" is consistently ranked as one of the top rated series, so if CBS opts to move it opposite Monday Night Raw, there will be at least a portion of viewership that is drawn away from the flagship WWE series.

"Big Bang" would likely be moved to help anchor Mondays for the network as the extremely popular "How I Met Your Mother" will be ending its run at the end of this season, so the network's newer series could be programmed around "Big Bang" to help them find an audience.

"Bang" also has to be moved from its traditional Thursday timeslot as CBS has acquired the NFL's Thursday night football games this coming season.
